I poured some olive oil into the Instant Pot and turned it to Sauté Less for 8 minutes.

For this cheesy ground beef dish I used 2 pounds of lean ground beef because my husband has requested that more meat be in my Instant Pot recipes.

After I broke up the ground beef I added in some cut up mushrooms and onion.

I continued browning the beef.  When the Pot turned off the beef was still slightly pink.

I prepared some beef broth and added in some salt, pepper and onion powder.  I used this mixture to deglaze the Pot, scraping any brown bits from the bottom.

Next I added in 2 1/2 cups of water and a can of diced tomatoes.  I did not stir.

Then I sprinkled in 2 cups of long grain rice.  I did not stir.

I pushed the rice down so it was all submerged in the liquid.

Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 7 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I immediately turned the steam release handle to the venting position and did a Quick Release.

I removed the lid and quickly stirred the contents.

While the concoction had been cooking in the Pot I crumbled some cooked bacon that I now added to the Pot.

After stirring in the cooked bacon I added in some shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese blend. 

After stirring in the cheese I added in some dill pickles that I had cut up earlier.

Once I had folded in the dill pickles it was ready to serve.
